Sample text

When two computations run concurrently on a single computer, the hard part of supporting controlled interaction is to keep the interaction under control. For example, in my earlier example of a pair of threads, one produces some data and the other consumes it. In such a situation, there is no great mystery to how the data can flow from one to the other, because both are using the same computer’s memory. The hard part is regulating the use of that shared memory. 8. If the producer and consumer run at different times, or on different computers, the operating system and middleware will need to take pains to convey the data from one to the other.

In fact, this is an important principle that extends beyond the operating system to include application software and the humans who operate it. Therefore, I will make a habit of addressing security issues in every chapter, rather than only at the end of the book. Specifically, each chapter concludes with a section pointing out some of the key security issues associated with that chapter’s topic. I also provide a more coherent treatment of security by concluding the book as a whole with Chapter 11, which is devoted exclusively to security.

This prevents results of a half-completed transaction from becoming visible. Transactions are incredibly useful in designing reliable information systems and have widespread commercial deployment. They also provide a good example of how mathematical reasoning can be used to help design practical systems; this will be the chapter where I most prominently expect you to understand a proof. Even threads that have no reason to interact may accidentally interact, if they are running on the same computer and sharing the same memory.
